Ce livre est plein de petit "trucs" extrêmement utiles pour le travail d'écriture. L'humour est omniprésent pendant tout l'ouvrage, ce qui permet de retenir facilement les quelques règles énoncées. L'auteur nous pousse à nous poser les bonnes question concernant aussi bien nos situation que nos personnages. Pour finir, chaque chapitre dispose d'exercices d'écriture, plus ou moins simple mais bien trouvés, qu'il est très recommandé de faire afin d'incorporer les règles dans notre processus d'écriture.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Outdated and generic, not worth it 5 mars 2017
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
25 years ago I guess this book would've been pretty handy, but it is sorely, SORELY in need of a revision at the very least.

The references have dated badly (Dana Carvey and Church Lady, oof), and I'm not really seeing anything in terms of techniques in this book that I can't get for free online to be honest. And the tone of the jokes used as examples...the world has changed a fair bit since this book's first publishing. When interspersed with the author's filler tales of personal experience, it just becomes a wordy exercise in tedium.

This book is amazing! I purchased it with the plan of starting to write some of my own bits. I wrote one or two but never pursued it much further because life got in the way. I will say, however, that it was still very much a worthwhile purchase if for no other reason than learning more about the mechanics of comedy has actually allowed me to appreciate just watching and listening to comedy even more!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The quality of this book is fantastic 29 juin 2015
Par DC Crowley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The quality of this book is fantastic. Each chapters adds a new perspective. Full of common sense, process, get your feet back on the ground, but ignore that nasty little voice in your head... of course you can do it.

I needed to get up to speed for a humorous Toastmasters speech. I sped read the chapter on comedy and jeopardy. I scored some valuable points thanks to what I learned here. I never did comic writing ever before. This book is really very good at least for beginners like me. I really enjoy reading this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If you're not blessed with the humor gene, Vorhaus can help 13 avril 2012
Par Jacqui Murray - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this book because I wanted to see if there were guidelines for humor. I like steps, a plan, Rules A, B, C that will insure I achieve the right end result. And the book's byline--"A funny idea is worthless until you understand the mechanics of its construction and execution. Meet Mr. Goodwrench."--made it sound like I'd found my blueprint.

Besides being a successful comic writer for most of his life with credits for a variety of sitcoms, Vorhaus taught at a variety of Film-oriented schools including the American Film Institute. What he does in the book is distill his lifetime of comedy writing into a how-to toolkit on creating humor. He starts by analyzing humor, explaining why some lines are funny and others aren't, with lots of examples. You can't get bored reading this book because the moment it starts to feel like a textbook, it breaks out into a joke (What do you get when you cross a Jehovah's Witness with an agnostic? Someone who rings your doorbell for no apparent reason). Here are some hints that made sense to me in my quest for humor:

mix truth with pain (A man falls off a cliff. As he plummets to his death, he's heard to mutter, 'So far, so good.')
be willing to risk making yourself look stupid
for every ten jokes you tell, nine will be trash
the comic premise is the gap between comic reality and real reality (for example, in the comic strip Peanuts, there's a gap between Snoopy's 'real' reality--he's a dog--and his 'comic' reality--he's a World War I flying ace
humor through exaggeration (Jerry Lewis is the supreme bumbler)--and be bold about it
clash of context--a forced union of incompatibles--i.e., lunar golf course, Madonna sings opera
the wildly inappropriate response--For example, a backyard barbeque with militant vegetarianism, at a baseball game cheering for the vendors
the law of comic opposites
tension and release

Each chapter, he not only explains the comedic tool, he encourages the reader to practice the tool. For example, in the chapter, The Comic Premise, readers must write a mundane task (i.e., going to a store) and what would make that out of the ordinary (shopping for Uzis). Here's one example I liked: a mundane event--the Magna Carta; out of the ordinary rejoinder--written by e.e. cummings.

In a nutshell, Vorhaus breaks comedy down into its bits and pieces. Yes, some people are blessed with the comic gene, a funny bone that turns life into a laugh tape, but the rest of us need help. Since I'm a firm believer that every story goes better with a sense of humor (I get a lot of my funny-isms from my naturally-talented husband), you'll want to spend a couple hours with this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Read This Book (I mean, I am dying to read this book!) 30 août 2013
Par R. Garza - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am writer, try to be, most days. I send out a lot of stuff but most of the time it comes back rejected, and that's ok, it's all part of the process. And, that "process" is what Vorhaus helps you find. I have read his other book, "Creativity Rules!" and have found many of those techniques/tools to be invaluable in my everyday writing.

I expect the same fromt his book as well. I have only read the first few chapters and have had to put it down for the demands of some writing classes I am taking but in those first few chapters I can see how useful these lessons will be. What he does is take the creative experience from the muse, from the clouds, and breaks it down into easy to understand, concrete "tools" anyone can use and master, I imagine, hope, with practice.

If you are interested in the writing process, get this book
